Buried Alive in the Blues

Big Dave

Scratch. Greenbacks. Moolah. Spondulicks, even. Those little green pieces of paper (and lack thereof) are the theme of today's show. To quote the legendary Johnny "Guitar" Watson, "It's all about the dollar bill." Songs about having' it, not havin', the process of acquiring and getting rid of said funds - everybody knows the tale. Dig!

Genre

Jazz, Folk, Rock, Blues, Funk, R&B
